So the packaging for the RTX 2080 Ti managed to be completely different and nearly the same all at the same time. How is that possible you ask? Well, the shape of the box is exactly the same. It pulls apart by pulling the top off as well. But the printing on the box has a new angled line design all over the box with the GeForce RTX logo in the bottom left corner as well as along the side just like before with the GTX logo.
Inside of the box, the card itself came with a transparent plastic covering it. This was a big step up over the tinted static bags of the past when it comes to letting you see your nice new expensive video card right away. The downside, of course, is if you ever want to sell it later and you save the box, you won’t have a static bag to keep it safe. With the metal backplate and everything, I’m not sure how needed it is anymore anyhow though. The card sits in a foam tray cut to hold it perfectly and there is more foam up in the top to help hold the top as well. There is then a small thin box for all of the documentation and accessories tucked away behind the card into the foam, just like in the past. Inside you get a support guide and a quick start guide. The quick start guide has the 2080 Ti branding on it but the support guide is more generic. Then you also get a DisplayPort to DVI adapter. With the 10 series Founders, Editions Nvidia dropped the DVI port for more airflow and obviously, it's not coming back for the 20 Series!
